I got these at a Singapore tackle shop. Couldn't get any info on them, the wife was looking after the shop while the owner was away for the day. I think they are different makers. Was hoping someone here has seen them before and knows something about them.
Cheers Brad.

The first one is a classic Asian shape called a 'jump frog'.  I bought about 14 various timber and molded ones in Thailand last month from different 'brands' although the molded ones are probably the same mold but different colours, haha.  That particular one is a stunning timber combo! Great pick up.
What struck me about these is that the perform on a straight retrieve, and quite quickly...  Some will 'hop' and some will do like a combo 'hop'/'walk' - they are snakehead specials. I don't remember the rule but the shape of the face around the tow point determines which rod angle to hold your rod. I didn't get a fish on one, as the areas I got fish needed something even more snag proof!

The others definitely look like other Asian shapes I have come across, but I don't know anything about specific target fish/model names/makers/etc.

Thanks for the info. Always someone here with the answers. I wanted to get a few more but only had those 3 there. The other tackle shops I visited had top end Japanese lures. Great to look through them all because we don't have a lot of them here. Just too expensive for me. Thanks again Ducks.
Cheers Brad
